There is nothing quite like packing up the family and heading out of the city to get away from it all for a camping trip. Many childhood memories revolve around trips like this, exploring the Great Outdoors and living off the land for a bit, even if only partially so. Camping does take a bit of planning and equipment in order to ensure a smooth trouble-free trip and a good time by all. There are a few camping essentials that can make a difference in how enjoyable the family vacation ends up being.
Camping lights are great to cast illumination around a dark camping site whether you have an RV with electrical hook-up or a tent with no electricity at all. There are many different kinds and styles of camping lights available to meet any need. There are lantern-type strung lights that can be draped around an awning or the edge of a camper that would need electricity in order to function. For those that really get into the heart of camping there are awning lights in the form of fish, deer and other wildlife. Solar camping lights are a great accessory to any camping gear.
Camping toilets and camping lights are just two great camping essentials that will enhance and improve any camping trip whether your idea of roughing it is in a five star recreational vehicle or sleeping out under the stars in a sleeping bag. Camping is a wonderful way to get the family away from the hustle and bustle of overly hectic lives and adding in a few items of convenience will make it that much better.
A portable camping toilet is a must whether you prefer more rustic camping or if you are assigned a camp site quite a distance from park washroom facilities. Those toilets can also be great for little ones that are too scared to go in the woods, during the middle of the night or in those emergency moments when they have waited just a bit too long to tell mom and dad they have to go. There are more advanced designs available that have flushing capabilities and an easy to clean and empty waste disposal container, or there are simple and convenient five gallon potty stools that simply need to be emptied after the call of nature is answered.
